Flood's Bar and Grill


  Photos from the 1940s of Flood's Bar. Pictured on the right is Patrick Flood standing with his dad outside the bar.             



Flood's drink menu and photos are from the mid-1940s. Can anyone imagine a Martini for 25 cents? And how about a shot of Old Quaker for 10 cents?

For old time movie buffs who might recall the 1945 movie The Lost Weekend, when Ray Milland went on his weekend bender with only a few dollars in his pocket, it's not hard to imagine how blasted he could get at these prices.
